    Making Food Safety a Priority in Restaurants
    Grand Ballroom

    A risk-based approach in bringing non-compliant facilities into compliance.

    The Southern Nevada Health District has instituted a uniform approach to guide food establishments in managing food safety risks in their facilities. This approach identifies facilities that have uncontrolled food-safety risk factors and brings accountability from a regulatory standpoint to the facility. Since instituting this approach, traditionally non-compliant facilities have either come into compliance with recognized food-safety standards or lost the ability to serve food to the public. This approach can be applied to any organization that struggles with standards compliance.

    Mitigating Climate Risk: An examination of its effects on bond credit ratings and insurance coverage
    Climate change is having a significant impact on the insurance industry and a cascading effect on policyholders. This presentation will review the insurance industry’s evolution on the subject and present climate change from a traditional relationship of insurance carrier-to-policyholder and an inverted relationship of insurance industry as a major buyer of municipal and utility revenue bonds. The influence of climate change on insurance coverage and its challenge to such bonds as stable investments will similarly be examined. The perspective of rating agencies and municipal bond buyers will be explored, as will the concept of climate change as a grey rhino.

    Emerging Risks: You Can’t Afford to Ignore What You May Not Understand

    One of the bigger challenges for risk leaders is getting ahead of poorly understood or completely unforeseen risks. They're not usually "black swans" as they've likely already occurred elsewhere and may a part of your organization's future. One this is certain: you can't afford to ignore these poorly understood exposures. CEO’s want to know what they can’t anticipate that will impact stakeholder expectations.

    This session will explain how to get ahead of these concerns and will include:

    • Why try to manage the “Unmanageable?”
    • Identifying emerging risks
    • Best practice considerations
    • What is VUCA World?
    • Selected emerging risks to consider
    • Key take-a-ways for your next steps
